Who therefore counters his opponent with the word of God, he will also gain a victory over him, because he is not equal to the divine word, because it is an expression of power of God, from which he escapes. Read more:

Through his will man determines the success of the powers of light or of darkness.

2. April 1949. B.D. NR. 4603.

It remains a constant fight between the powers of light and of darkness, as long as the spiritual is not completely redeemed. The wrestling man is influenced by both sides; the kingdom of light seeks to have an effect on his will and to impart the knowledge of truth to him, the dark powers seek to push him away and to confuse his thinking and man must decide for himself, so that he remains free in his wanting and acting. And this decision he can make with his heart or also with his intellect. The beings of light speak to the heart; the beings of darkness to the intellect, nevertheless also heart and intellect can feel themselves pleasantly touched by the influence of the light beings, and then his decision is fully valid; victory is granted to the light beings and the powers of darkness made ineffective for ever. But the opponent of God does not give up the fight so easily, and he fights with all means, also not shrinking from blinding men in the robe of light, who are still approachable to his influence. He will indeed not be able to penetrate with his influence, i.e., to completely win such men for him, but his influence reaches so far, to prevent them to work for the kingdom of God; he makes then so to speak unsuitable for it and has much won with it. The favour of God is an extremely effective antidote, but man is not allowed to reject it in wrong knowledge, otherwise the opponent wins his game. But the most effective means of favour is Godís word, which will radiate out power always and in all situations in life on him, who receives it with the heart. Who therefore counters his opponent with the word of God, he will also gain a victory over him, because he is not equal to the divine word, because it is an expression of the power of God, from which he escapes. Consequently man can emerge out of his wrestling as victor, when he makes use of the power of God, which is at his disposal in his word unmeasured. He can beat the strongest enemy with it Ė if he himself makes use of the divine word, he so to speak represents God himself and for that reason also cannot lose. His will, his heart and his love must completely be turned towards God, then God himself fights also on his side, and victory is certain for him. Because what is perhaps more understandable than that everyone, who wants to God, also enjoys his protection and finds support from God in every way. And no matter whether the powers of darkness always besiege man Ė God does not let fall to darkness, who seek the light and consciously strive towards him Ė and he will rescue also those, who are still of weak will, who cannot fend off the dark powers themselves and still want the right thing Ė help will be theirs to the right time. Amen. B.D. NR. 4603.
